Old, that someone who shapens saws blades is writing this post. Have my own sharpner. I know it's too expensive to pay someone to sharpen planner blades. What I have is said to be throw aways. I put lots of wood through the planner before I change blades. Just trying to visualize how I could make an attachment for an 8 inch grinder. Hoping someone has sucessfully done it.

I miss having access to the machine shop at school. Even though it was a WW2 army surpluss surface grinder, it worked perfectly. Loved the magnetic chuck too. Wish I had a surface grinder. Might have to add that to my bucket list. Currently there is nothing in the bucket.

Anyone have an old surface grinder that a retired person could afford?

Ya the guy I would go to to sharpen things like that was 72 back in 1992 and is long since gone. He was very good but also got to old to do it any more. I know a guy who could still do it but he is also a machinist and has many tools I would love to learn to use

Would a floor model large belt sander like the old Craftsman work/ I have one and many more metal work projects on it than steel. It also has the disc sander and table on it. Indispensable.

I have, I welded up a jig a little over 12" long I believe the angle on my blades was 37 deg.after welding I set it up on the Bridgeport with the head tilted to 37 deg. and trued it up I milled a step for the blade to set on and drilled and tapped a series of holes then made a stepped plate to clamp the blade in place. I grind them on the surface grinder can do my 6" jointer blades as well.A few strokes with a fine stone does it.
